On June 26, Scientology Network will commemorate the United Nations’ annual International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking with a full day of programming dedicated to highlighting the effectiveness of drug prevention through education.
With cocaine manufacture reaching record highs and overdose deaths due to fentanyl increasing by 279 percent in the US since 2016, the message of the day is clear: the ill effects of drugs must be prevented by educating society on their true dangers.
To mark the day, Scientology Network is airing a special marathon of shows focused on raising awareness of the damaging effects of drugs and showcasing the individuals and organizations taking the fight against drugs to the streets, schools and communities around the world.
Volunteers like Lance Dyer—whose 14-year-old son died when trying synthetic cannabinoids for the first time—uses the Foundation for a Drug-Free World materials to educate youth throughout his home state of Alabama. Featured on an episode of Voices for Humanity, Dyer states: “When you have an organization like the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, you’re saving lives.… If you save one life, that’s a day well spent. And reality is, to get out there and help and educate and save as many as we can. And as long as I’ve got breath in my body, that’s what I’m going to do.”
Backed by a massive network of volunteers and over 7,000 partnerships in 180 countries across six continents, the Foundation for a Drug-Free World’s message has reached nearly one billion people with an acclaimed package of anti-drug educational materials.
The day’s programming (beginning 9:00A ET) includes:
